Tourette's Syndrome

Heyhoo..
Yep, another fascinating presentation today in my class..
Today we were talking about disorders.
There were Schizophrenia, mood disorders, and depressions.
One grup was presenting a topic (and showing a video, of course) which made me so much thought that I really need to share to you, peeps..
It was about Tourette's Syndrome or TS.
Tourette's is not related to autism, OCD, attention-deficit, hyperactivity disorder, or seizure activity
Have you ever known someone that showed uncontrolled tics?
He/she moved unusual or vocalized bizarre sounds, repeatedly?
Some of them may be a laughing matter because of people's ignorance?
They may be people with TS.
TS is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder that is first evident in childhood.
TS characterized by multiple movements and uncontrollable vocalizations called tics that come and go over years. In a few cases, such tics can include inappropriate words and pharases. Not all people with TS are showing tics, many people experience additional problems such as obsessive compulsive behavior (OCD).

And last but not least, my favorite tagline about TS :
